The Alton Municipal Band is kicking off WEEK 7 of Concerts in the Park with an EVENING WITH ERIN BODE at Riverview Park on Thursday, July 22 at 8pm and again at Haskell Park on Sunday, July 25th at 7pm. Conductor Jennifer Shenberger will take the podium and warm your hearts with a wonderful selection of music for the evening featuring vocalist Erin Bode in from Nashville, Tennessee. It has been two years since Erin Bode performed with the Alton Municipal Band at their Holiday Concert at the Alton Square Mall in December of 2019. We are extremely excited to have her back again and this time we are outside, less restrictive, where it is safer and there is air. It will be relaxing and just sort of beautiful to hear her voice again.
The new Dairy Bar ice cream truck from Carrollton, Illinois will be stopping by Haskell Park on Sunday July 25th and ready to serve up some summertime treats. All children attending the concert and participating in the march around the park will get a coupon for an ice cream cone. Coupons will also be passed out to children at the Thursday concert at Riverview Park. The Dairy Bar will be at the Haskell Park location at 5:30pm before the concert begins until 9pm. With a playground nearby, the band is happy to offer some extra fun to young families attending the park with their children.
Now in its 131st consecutive season of summer concerts, the Alton Municipal Band welcomes and encourages the community to visit the parks for some quality outdoor time together with family and friends. The large footpad of the parks allows for distancing, so bring a lawn chair and enjoy listening to some of the best music around. Alton Municipal Band is requiring members to wear bell masks on their instruments during the performance to reduce aerosols. All audience members similarly are encouraged to follow the state and city COVID health and safety guidelines
